Snap and click, snap and click, snap and click, snap and click.


I find it very hard to link photo's sometimes, this is Dartmoor in all of it's glory today.


I keep snapping and then forget, or don't use half of the photo's, they tend to stack up forgotten at the very bottom of the photo files.


So today, I thought I would show you Spring in Devon,


When someone asks me to describe the place where we live, nothing does it better than a photo even if it's a photo taken on a grey day. We live over there on the other side of the hill by the way.


The bluebells are out, one of my very favourite times of year. Everything looks, not just green, but a fresh green after the long days of Winter. There is a bluebell wood at the back of the village, it's on Freya's list of  places to walk later in the week.


We were in Totnes this morning, a trip to Ticklemore Street  (you thought our cottage had a funny name).  There is a great cheese shop. If you go in, you can even try before you buy.


As I keep snapping Freya for her blog, I find myself being aware of things at Freya's height. Notice the weeds at the shop door way. It's still a great cheese shop though, weeds at the door or not. Weeds or flowers ?
Take my word for it the cheese shop and the bluebell wood have a totally different smell.


Photo's from Freya's beach walk yesterday.


For all the drought conditions in the South and East of the country, we have water. Except not always where we need it, this was a downpour out at sea.


The sunset over Dartmoor last night.
I've used the photo's that I would have left unused. As for Freya's photo's......


Everyone with her in it, is a treasure.
You can find her over at Catflap Cavalier.
Or, if your in the bluebell wood during the week, we'll see you there.

The sunset is lovely. I have a special love for sunsets. My Grandfather and I used to sit on the steps and watch them each night when I was a tiny little girl.

Don't discount weeds. If it weren't for weeds, we'd have no yard at all.
Love to you all and include Frank.

Mmmmmm, a cheese shop! I could spend an hour or two in there doing some sampling:) Your pictures are beautiful! We're being blessed with some rain today, I love it!

We're moving to Florida next month...a very long road trip across the country...about 4 or 5 days. But it's much less expensive there which will be nice!

Blossoms! Bluebells! Beautiful Freya! Blue cheese!! What a wonderful paradise! Thank you for sharing your gorgeous bit of the world here - it's truly heavenly!

I say any weed is welcome especially if the street it grows on is called "Ticklemore"!

:-) Take care

Everything looks wonderful with spring in bloom.
It will rain tomorrow, so hoping I feel better when the weather gets nice again this week.

Are you having water shortage problems? I have a feeling we are going to have a dry summer.. Last year all it did was rain.. Oh well..
Have a great week, dear friend...

Hello from a neighbour in Somerset, enjoying the photos from Devon and the similar scenes here in South Somerset

These are gorgeous! Its the spread of sky when you are somewhere flat or near the sea which is amazin I think, as you don't always get that whe living in the hills and bogs as we do.
Our bluebells are just coming out/ up too- bluebells and primroses, so pretty!
Freya is obviously growing into her character- well what d'ya expect living with yourself??!!!!!

Bunny said...

I'm wishing for some of that blue sky, myself! Lovely photos, Midge. Can't get enough of your amazing scenery.

XOXO

Allie said...

You know I love your photos! I would love to walk with you in the bluebell wood, I'll be there in spirit. How I would love a good wander around Dartmoor....

Still giggling about Ticklemore street...

Thanks for sharing Midge. I am really enjoying the Spring colours. The flowering currant is particularly gorgeous this year.

Lovely pictures - we went to Devon last year for the first time ever (I know!) and sooo enjoyed it. You live in a beautiful place, but you know that don't you! XCathy

Spring in Devon looks wonderful :)

Lovely photos, enjoyed the commentary. There's a road in the next village to us called "Clatterpot Lane", and also a small village called "Wood Nook" a bit further away. I like unusual names too!
